clinton changed his mind. hillary rodham clinton came out and spoke about it. republican rob portman spoke about it. and i think, wolf, there's a question here about whether this shift in public opinion is actually going to affect the supreme court. those justices sitting on the bench. when you talk to both sides of the argument, one side says, the side that's for same sex marriage, will say, you know, maybe it will help us because the court won't think it's such a heavy lift to rule in favor of same sex marriage. they won't be going against public opinion and in the way they were against interracial marriage, for example. or on the other side, they say the court will also say, look. it's proceeding in the states. you know, you now have eight or nine states who have approved same sex marriage. public opinion is shifting. let it play out with the voters and the court's not the place to do it. >> they're very conservative ideas at play here, too. back in 1996 when the court passed the defense of marriage act a lot of people said, the united states congress was actually moving against s

, hillary clinton came out in support of same-sex marriage in a video that your organization released this week. the former secretary of state, u.s. senator, 2008 presidential candidate, backed benefits for same-sex couples but never made an endorsement for marriage. she says it's about equality. listen. >> gay rights are human rights. and human rights are gay rights. and the united states would be a leader in defending those rights. >> do you think this is move to influence the supreme court like the american academy of pediatrics and others trying to get the opinion out there now before the court decides? >> i think what you see from hillary clinton and from the american academy of pediatrics and more and more figures public and private, more and more organizations, this is the issue in front of the court and in front of the american people in a way that it never has been before and lots of folks want to make sure their position on the issue is clear and you have seen more and more folks coming out for equality because that's where our country is and where it's going. >> we showed t

involved on almost a daily basis. first secretary hillary clinton helped to spearhead the efforts that formed a coherent syrian opposition council. now you've got secretary kerry who's deeply involved in that effort as well. and we are providing not just words but resources, training, capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and to be able to provide direct services to people inside of syria including the kinds of relief efforts that obviously we're seeing here in jordan, but there are a whole bunch of people who are internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarily. and i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in militarily, then it's criticized for going in militarily. and if it doesn't go in militarily, then people say why aren't you doing something militarily. and, you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as

courts. i just wanted to ask you, i know this is difficult because as an attorney, as a former clinton adviser, as jack of all trades, you are also proponent for marriage equality as a gay attorney, as well. the argument on the other side is for voters rights. this must be very difficult for you for someone who supports democracy also to equate and yet not. >> it's not really that difficult because voters -- i don't really see it as an issue of voter's rights. the voters cannot vote to h amendment the constitution or vote in something that's unconstitutional. our principles of the constitution are more important than what voters decide. voters couldn't decide that women shouldn't have the right to vote say for instance or that we could have segregated schools. >> or slaves. >> but the interesting thing about this is that our constitution is a living breathing document. that's the way the founding fathers set it out. so it is interesting how as we progress as a country and as how our culture anges, that we should see the constitution changing to fit different opportunities. but that was

in 1979, the same month the of the egypt israel peace treaty. in clinton's term, there were four visits. in 1994, a peace treaty signed between israel and jordan while he was here. there were two things during that time, a crucial moment for the u.s. to show its friendship and again, during a peace accord. and then george w. bush waited until the very end of his term until he was about to leave office, but that's when his administration was doing finally at a point in the peace discussions where a pld shal visit could add know men actual. and so that timing people here say made sense. this time, there is no similar momentum the president's visit could lend to any peace deal, to any discussion regarding iran and no deliverable regarding syria, so many people just don't understand why now. >> so you bring up iran. let me ask about iran. do we have any idea what president obama may be saying about iran, what is it that prime minister netanyahu would like to hear? >> quite simply he's expected to repeat what we heard before, that he will say iran simply cannot be allowed to get a nuc
